Succeed in your field.

I was awarded the Advanced Nursing Education Workforce (ANEW) grant, which supports innovative academic-practice partnerships to prepare Nurse Practitioner students to practice in rural and underserved settings through academic and clinical training. Due to this grant, I have been able to work first-hand in many underserved clinical settings and have gained an immense knowledge base in caring for underserved populations."
